Come and explore the streets of Shinbashi on this amazing food experience. Check out how the Japanese working class unwind after a long day at the office in the maze of Shimbashi eateries, izakayas and standing bars. A highly recommended MUST do activity in Tokyo!
In this experience, we show our guests the endless rows and alleys, twists and turns of Shinbashi, the salaryman centre of the world. Known for its rustic izakayas and abundant food stalls, we help cut through the noise to show our guests some of the most tucked away places to grab some of the most satisfying food on the planet.
Starting outside Shinbashi Station, we begin our experience by entering the chasm of eateries overrun on a nightly basis by the working class of Japan. You are instantly surrounded by thousands of salarymen descending upon their favorite izakaya bar to grab a quick bite and cold beer before taking the long train ride home.
Not far into our journey, we stop for a quick bite of Okonomiyaki, a savoury pancake made by mixing ingredients like finely sliced squid, shrimp, pork, beef, and cabbage into a batter made from flour and grilling on a flat iron grill. Each guest will have one Okonomiyaki and a drink.
Once we are finished with our okonomiyaki, we continue to wind our way through the maze of izakayas and long alley of local eateries, we will head to another eatery that specializes in food from the south of Japan. This place grows their own vegetables and raises their own chickens so everything is extremely fresh. Here we will have 4 local food with very distinct taste from this region of Japan!
